Made these crunchy nutty cookies for the valentines day. They are very healthy and nutritious as I have made them with whole wheat flour. The fennel seeds give these cookies a very unique flavor. Thanks Swathi for these lovely yummy cookies.

Add baking powder and soda and beat again for a minute or two.

Now add the flour gradually and knead the cookie dough.

Knead as little as possible do not over knead.
